    How was your appointment with Dr. Donovan?

    Aug 13, 2022
    Dr Donovan and his staff are amazing . I had been suffering for many years with shoulder pain. I had gone to several Drs with no relief. He was thorough and explained my options. I had a reverse shoulder replacement, out patient 6 weeks ago. I am out of pain and back to work a week later. I am rehabbing and they too are amazed at my progress. I had had 5 motorcycle wrecks, a skydiving accident and had been an iron worker for years. I am 66 years old and pain free.
